Microwave Potato Chips
A healthier alternative to a traditional snack-time favorite. Use your favorite spices to create personalized flavors. (Nutritional yeast + garlic powder = cheesy garlic chips!) The simple method makes this a fun snack to prep with kids, but if you use a mandolin, be sure to protect little fingers!

1. Toss the potatoes with oil and salt to coat evenly.
2. Coat a large microwave-proof plate with cooking spray. Arrange some potato slices in a single layer on the plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high until some slices start to brown (2-3 minutes).
3. Turn the slices over and continue microwaving until they start to crisp and brown around the edges (2-4 minutes). Check frequently and rearrange slices as needed to prevent scorching. Repeat with the remaining potato slices.
